Jarvis Cocker Writes Essay Supporting Upcoming People’s Climate March

Rally Gathering This Sunday

Sep 19, 2014 Jarvis Cocker Bookmark and Share

In New York City this weekend on Sunday, Sept. 21 close to 100,000 people are expected to take part in the People’s Climate March, a rally that will coincide with a UN summit of global leaders addressing the world’s climate crisis. Ahead of the scheduled event, Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker has penned an essay appearing in Creative Times Reports that is in support of the march. Addressing the importance of the march and individualized action, Cocker relates his own firsthand experience seeing the effects of climate change:

“Back in 2008, I sailed the coast of Greenland on a vessel chartered by the organization Cape Farewell and saw the effects of global warming firsthand. It exists. On the way home, we spent a few hours in Reykjavík’s international airport waiting for a connecting flight back to the UK. I bought an ashtray made out of lava. When I got back home, I turned the TV on. It was the morning of the stock market crash and I learned that Iceland, the country I had been visiting not four hours previously, was effectively bankrupt.

That gave me a strange feeling because I hadn’t noticed. The sun had still been shining as I walked through the airport terminal. People had gone about their everyday business as usual, there had been air to breathe and nothing to betray the cataclysm that had befallen the entire country. How could that be? This was a financial crisis! The Big One! THE ECONOMY was at risk! Why was the world still turning?

You whisper now, but could it be that there is a higher power than … THE ECONOMY? I know that sounds a bit sacrilegious, but could it be that THE ECOLOGY is actually the biggie? That maybe having air to breathe, water to drink and land to inhabit could be more important than the fluctuations of the FTSE or the Dow Jones? It’s just a thought — a thought that most people instinctively understanding[sic], but that the political classes have yet to grasp.”

Jarvis Cocker’s essay is a positive approach towards the People’s Climate March that will coincide with a UN summit of global leaders addressing the world’s climate crisis. With almost 100,000 people going for the march, it is literally a massive movement, which will definitely spread a message for the society as a whole. Moreover, a celebrity writing an essay in its favour is something that just adds on to the benefits.

I saw it last night. I think you were a bit hard on Matt B, since Cocker seemed to have no idea, and he was warming himself up in the ID card section. The Michael Jackson thing was mentioned in the last five minutes of the show, and Jarvis, God bless him, died telling us that the last 15 years of Jackson’s life were almost meaningless when it came to music.

Great job and a very important topic. It’s wonderful that people like Jarvis are interested in this and cover this topic. I read a lot of information and wrote a paper using the service I found on Pick The Writer. The effects of global warming have been visible for a long time and it is very important to study and share this information to do everything possible to prevent tragic consequences.
